I was born and raised in Fort Wayne, IN. At age 16, I was married and starting a family with the birth of my first daughter. In 1988, my husband’s parents relocated to Dowagiac, MI and we followed. I have now been married 26 years and have been blessed by God with four beautiful children and one precious granddaughter.
Growing up, my mother taught me to love and respect God. My husband comes from a long line of preachers and pastors. Even though I loved and believed in God, I didn’t always live my life to serve Him. In 2000 and 2001, I was compelled to church out of fear; getting wrapped up in the Y2K craze thinking the world was going to end and 911 in which I was gripped with fear the I would never see my children grown into adulthood. This fear brought me to Liberty Chapel; I chose Liberty Chapel as it was pastored by my husband’s cousin and I knew I would be welcome. God shed His grace and mercy upon me and began a work within me at that time. But after one year I stopped going to church, but humbly asked the Lord not to let me go too far.
I came back to Liberty Chapel in 2008 by my husband. I didn’t want to go at the time, but God grabbed a hold of me. One day I was sitting at the kitchen table with my head how, not even praying, but Jesus showered me with His Love. I can’t even explain what transpired. I didn’t deserve it. It was Love like I had never known before and it consumed my entire being. It was just the perfect amount of too much if that makes any sense! He caused me to love Him back. If God could love me, He can love anybody. I love Jesus with my whole heart and I am grateful for what He has done in my life.
Tracy Saylor serves in the choir and leads the Daughters of the King, a monthly bible study for women. Tracy has a humble heart and desires to encourage women to have a close and personal relationship with Jesus and to seek God in all they do. She is hungry to learn all she can of Jesus and is excited to witness to others. Liberty Chapel is blessed to have such a prayer warrior!
